Mozilla Announces Shut Down the Firefox-Powered Connected Device Project and Laying Off 50 Employees

Mozilla is shutting down the initiative and is also laying off its team of 50 employees. Firefox OS was a mobile OS created to bring low-cost handsets to developing markets. The Connected Devices initiative was part of that project, with a stated mission to, "Influence the design of the devices and protocols that make up the Internet of Things to ensure that they embody the values enumerated by the Mozilla manifesto, including openness, accessibility, decentralisation, interoperability, security, privacy and individual empowerment. The initiative which was an attempt to grow beyond browsers is ending and the company has confirmed the layoff also. The layoff might also help Mozilla to focus on Project Quantum, Mozilla's next-generation web engine.

The iOS availability has been tested in countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Austria and Canada. The browser already runs on Android devices.
